Money has been promised for major resurfacing work on a dangerous road ridden with potholes.

Watford Borough Council is set to pay for repairs to the road leading from Goodwood Avenue to Goodwood Recreation Ground, scheduled to begin in 2020.

The route links the Green Flag park to various popular spots in the community and is often used in parents commutes when walking children to or nearby Holy Rood and Orchard primary schools.

Liberal Democrat Councillor Mark Watkin, said: “I’m delighted we have secured much needed funding for this important access road. Goodwood Recreation Ground is a local treasure and I hope the new entrance will enhance residents’ enjoyment of this wonderful park.”

Leggatts Labour councillor Asif Khan also said: "I'm pleased that the path is going to be finally repaired. I had been asking for a number of years to get this done on behalf of residents. 

"Watford council determined they owned the path and working with officers they've confirmed to me that the improvements will finally be made."

The request for additional funding for the road was raised by the Courtlands Residents Association and other residents after concerns that the road was becoming dangerous and an eyesore due to its potholes.

Green Flag park is set to have several other improvements including the road refurbishment, including a new spinner at the playground, trees, information boards, umbrellas for the picnic area and a woodland path connecting the park to Greenbank Road.
